VeChain is close to completing one of its most symbolic milestones – launching their own main net dubbed VeChain Thor. Apart from launching their own main net, VeChain foundation will have a token swap between the current asset VEN and the future token VET, which would be the native token of the new VeChain Thor network.
VeChain Thor is only Days Away
VeChain Thor is only several days ahead and in that spirit, the VEN community seems to be pretty ecstatic, while the public is waiting for the main net to be finally launched into the public, the team behind VeChain foundation is working on final preparations for the main net launch and the live version of VeChain Thor.
During the final preparations, among which beta testing of the upcoming network took place, the team behind VEN has also gone forward with announcing several partnerships that will come as integral for the future development of the upcoming main net Thor.
VeChain foundation has also published an official timeline to help the community follow up with the launching of the new main net, and in accordance with the published timeline, VeChain Thor should get to see the first public user on June 30th, that way entering July as well as a brand new stage for VEN, soon to become VET token.
The main net is said to be officially initiated with authority Masternode deployment for the live net, followed by the generation of genesis block, which would at the same time mark the birthday of VeChain Thor. On the same day, a snapshot will be taken on Ethereum with X-Node monitoring pauses.
The team has also added on the published timeline that the new wallet for VeChain Thor should come out on July 9th, while X-Node Binding service should become available on the same day.
Somewhere in mid-July, the token swap should be concluded with VET tokens ready for trading on exchanges where available. The exact time for when the live trading of VET tokens will begin is yet to be arranged with the exchange platforms that support VeChain trading and transactions.
It is expected that the exchanges will complete the process of token swapping by the end of July, which means that once exchanges are done with their part, VeChain Foundation will be providing token swap services to their users.
August 1st is marked on the provided timeline as the day when X-Node status monitoring is ought to resume, however, the team stresses out that the initial day for the mentioned resume can easily change as it all depends on how successful the token swap turns out to be.
Concluding the timeline of the VeChain Thor main net launch, Ledger integration with VET is scheduled somewhere in August while the exact date is yet to be determined based on the overall progress of the milestone completion as described in the timeline.
For now, everything seems to be on schedule, so the VEN community can expect to see VeChain Thor launched in several days from now, on June 30th.
In addition to the main net launch and the token swap from VEN to VET, all holders with a minimum of 10,000 VEN can become eligible for VET Strength Masternode while holding the given number of tokens in the time of the snapshot.
What Changes is VeChain Foundation Expecting with Thor Main Net?
Thor Main Net is said to be more scalable and more stable in oppose to the current chain that VEN uses. In oppose to the current chain used for transacting and operating with VEN currency, the new chain, Blockchain X, should provide an increased level of scalability.
This is the fact because the team is planning to have a vast number of smart contracts being operated with on the upcoming VeChain Thor main net, which is why the network is designed to be able to acquire a certain level of stability in the market for the future VET tokens as well.
VeChain Thor will act as Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS), working in many ways as a supply chain. However, the Thor main net is said to have the main goal of becoming one of the largest platforms for deploying decentralized applications.
In order to diminish the need for trust between two different parties when it comes to supply chain industry, VeChain Thor will be providing that trust factor in order to provide the needed technology for tracking down goods.
VEN will be consequently transformed into VET in the upcoming ending stage of the token swap, and on the Thor network, VET tokens will be used for powering up business ventures where the advantage on the network will be given to business owners using VET tokens.
Just like NEO, one of the well-known smart contract platforms produces GAS tokens, that is how the new VeChain Thor main net will be producing THOR that VET holders will be given for running applications on the platform and operate with smart contracts.
The network should consequently become one of the largest ecosystems for decentralized applications, alongside with providing a more stable rate of growth for VET tokens in the market.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity
While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle. Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance. One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess. That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS. These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there. While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.
What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?
In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount. There are several examples of this in our day to day lives. Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers. Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has. The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.
The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs. Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018. It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants. Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse. The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.
As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha. In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets. I can remember trading during my high school days. It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom. Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard. Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.
Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques. The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft. That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000. Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally. A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind. In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive. That prediction appears to be playing out as expected. Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive. Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets. One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
